Dear List Members:
We are mourning and will be mourning for a long while, the tragedy which
happened to us this week. I, as you, hurt and want to cry out and
scream to the world "that something has to be done", "we hurt", "why".
Those who lost loved ones will continue to need the support of their
fellow man while they either wait for word of of their missing or are
burying their dead. I I expect no less of each one of us and the days
The time has come though, for us to begin the process of trying to live
our lives in some kind of normalcy, by trying to slowly bring our lists
back to the topic for which they are designed. Therefore as I opened the
lists for you to express your grief, I now, most respectfully, and with
sorrow, ask that you help me bring them back to the topic of the list.
Today is the last day for posting of your feelings and thoughts to the
list regarding the tragedy.
If you have not had the chance or have felt strong enough to share you
feelings with us you can still post them at
I want to thank each of you for the manner in which you held our flag
high this past week, for the manner in which you shared your sorrow, for
the manner in which you shared your grief without attacking one another
or any culture. I especially want to thank those members who hurt as
badly as those who posted regarding what has happened in their world,
but could not deal with seeing this horror on their genealogy list.
They never said a negative word, but let those who needed this time and
this way to express their sorrow have it. These members were true
friends to each of us.
I ask now that each of you help me to again close the lists to any topic
other than the topic of the list as of tomorrow morning, Sunday,
September 16th, 2001.
I appreciate each of you and thank you for the support I am given by
each of you.
